Manage episode 338680378 series 2122070
Do you eat foods you don’t like very much because they’re low in calories or carbs, then feel unsatisfied afterwards and still crave something tastier?
There’s a scientific reason behind that!I have something exciting and NEW to share with you about mindset and eating.
Surprising evidence supports the role of mindset in weight management in a totally unexpected way.
How you think about what you’re eating affects your weight! What that means is what you think about your food affects how your body responds to it physiologically.
I mean how full or satisfied what you eat makes you feel.
It’s totally consistent with the Weight Loss for Foodies approach to eat what you love when you’re hungry as a way to lose weight and experience a peaceful relationship with food and eating.
It’s backed by the research of Alia Crum, a psychologist and researcher in the field of mindset at Stanford University.
Dr. Crum discovered that what people believed about what they were eating affected both their satisfaction with the food AND the levels of the hunger hormone their body made, which affected their appetite.
